It was a competition for eastern Pennsylvania’s best high school math students. It was held at Bloomsburg University.

The 18th annual math contest featured three events to test the math skills of 300 students from 28 schools, including Bloomsburg, Columbia Montour Vo-Tech, Milton and Shamokin from our area. The morning had Quiz Bowl and Brainteasers while the afternoon brought the most exciting competition, the card-based Game of 24 requiring teams to arrive at the number 24 through addition, subtraction, division and multiplication of numerals on four cards.

Bloomsburg University sends out letters across the state each year to invite schools to the competition.
